Organic Cover Crop/ Green Manure at Vital Zuman


Photo of the East Fig Orchard showing Winter Fig Trees bear of leaves and a nitrogen-rich cover crop of Mallow, Wild Oats, and Wild Barley.  This natural cover crop is rototilled into the topsoil in preparation for Spring planting of Pumpkins and Squashes et al. Remember, your weeds are your cover crop.  Rather than weeding out and removing weeds, tilling them into the soil provides a natural, abundant manure.
